The Mr. Nice Guy Show, a variety podcast (Internet "radio" program) focusing on popular culture and news - in edition #261 released for download February 16th - features an interview with an internationally-prominent researcher, author, psychologist and professor on the subject of ostracism: being ignored.

Dr. Kipling D. Williams, professor of Psychological Sciences at Purdue University and author of Ostracism: The Power of Silence, spoke with program host Marv K. about extensive research on why people do it, the serious effects, and how to react.

Host Marv K., says, "this is something we experience every day in our lives, yet few give it much thought or realize the significance. Whether it’s ‘the silent treatment’ from a loved one, a neighbour not responding to a hello, or even a kids game of musical chairs, it hurts to be excluded and it’s something we can all relate to. Dr. Williams's research and observations are nothing short of amazing and incredibly enlightening."

The Mr. Nice Guy Show, on the Web at http://MrNiceGuyShow.com/ is "a smart, fun look at our world, pop culture and news" produced approximately three times per week, with each edition approximately 10 minutes in length.

Host Marv K., a former broadcast radio personality, is a full-time reference librarian in the midwest USA. Using humour and his extensive research skills, he provides a world-wide audience with opportunities to learn while taking a playful look at the world around us.

"It's the way radio used to be...and still should be," says Marv K. The media shouldn't just exist to pacify us, to nurture ignorance." Podcasting offers great promise in informing and enriching listeners...almost like a library!"
